Please take a look at our newest adoptable dogs and whether you are looking for the perfect face, the perfect demeanor, or it's love at first sight, hopefully you will find the perfect companion at HITTGV! 

We are also in need of people who can support us as fosters! You can also foster a dog until the perfect forever home is found or as a trial period with the option to adopt.

To get started, please go to our 'Adoption' and/or 'Foster' tabs at the top of the page. Kindly fill out the form of your choice and submit to us. You can also e-mail us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call us at (707)583-9583 with your inquiries. Thank you for considering rescue and for helping us save more lives.

We're Sorry, But this event is sold out.

The number of dogs we can pull from the shelters and save from death is directly related to the number of foster homes we have available.

Sometimes it only takes a little time to network a good dog to find just the right fit. By using our foster families, we can accept more dogs before their time runs out and give them the best chance to find their new home. Fostering can be for a very short time, or longer as needed. If you can foster a dog just let us know what you are willing to commit to and we will find the right match for you. Medical expenses are paid for by us (with prior approval)—all you need to do is feed and fulfill the basic needs for the foster dog.  To learn more about our fostering program, click here.

Please complete our Foster form if you would be interested in fostering—you could be saving a precious life.

Many of the dogs that we rescue are saved only hours or even minutes before they are due to be euthanized.

Others are sent to us because for any number of reasons, their current owners are unable to keep them.

Herding dogs make wonderful companions for those who can give them the time and the outlet for their energy. They are not “lap dogs” who will be happy sitting on a sofa all day, but their energy and loyalty can provide the right home with unending love and enjoyment.

Help make a HAPPY ENDING for a rescue, fill out an adoption form.

Please either download, complete, and return the adoption form.

All potential adopters must be at least 21 years old, and have current identification, with a verifiable address and phone number.

Adoption Fee: We have an adoption fee, which is typically $250 per dog. This fee helps to reimburse our rescue for some - but not always all - of the veterinary and other costs incurred in the process of rescuing and caring for each dog.  To see how adoption fees are spent, click here.
